Leading an Outstanding Sixth Form
This role is the perfect opportunity for a highly qualified professional who is caring, strategic, rigorous and creative. This is a chance to join our highly experienced Senior Leadership Team, with a proven track record of success at the highest levels in education, to shape and implement our whole school strategy. We would welcome applications from experienced middle leaders and established senior leaders who wish to seize this opportunity to work with and develop some of the brightest young minds in the country. This year, sixteen of our students went to either Cambridge or Oxford and 146 went to Russell Group universities. Our first student went to Harvard in 2020. If you are a student centred practitioner, a teacher with a deep interest in pedagogy and a leader who can develop and inspire the staff around them, you should consider applying for this role.
Wallington County Grammar School is a selective state school situated in outer London. We admit boys into Year 7 and run a mixed Sixth Form. We were judged 'outstanding' in all five categories by Ofsted in January 2017 , including in 16-19 Study Provision, and our students achieve grades within the top two percent of schools in the country at A Level. We place a huge emphasis on the wider education of our students through our co-curriculum which features a vibrant house system that is led by our Sixth Form students. We run a huge range of clubs and societies, many of which are also student led, which are complemented by a Sixth Form enrichment curriculum that is delivered on Wednesday afternoons. Alongside this, all Sixth Form students have dedicated wellbeing lessons and many choose to take the Extended Project Qualification. Ultimately, our aim is to develop exceptionally well rounded individuals with the knowledge, skills and breadth of experience needed to play leading roles in governments, public organisations, multinational companies and charities.
